Paranormal Activity

I watched a little bit of this movie and took it off, not because it was not to my liking but for the fact this sh*t was too scary for me and it was a true story. This movie got me looking at my doors and every lil noise I hear in my house when I am by myself, I get paranoid lol.

I not payin no money or downloadin nutting to get scared.

Fork dat.  I go remain Paranormal ignorant.

On a side note...I really enjoyed "This Is it".  Had a kinda poignant finish to it and it was good to reinforce how I prefer to remember MJ.

The invention of lying with Ricky Gervais

Went to see this a few weeks ago.  A really compelling story line about a world where people just cannot lie except for the Ricky Gervais character who can.  Had loads of possibilities and potential as a plot but fell flat on it's face for me.  So flat in fact that I was told i was snorin in de people theatre halfway thru.  De fact dat nobody wake meh ass up provides some insight that maybe everybody else was dozin off too.

Disappointing.

I watched about 25 mins of it last night on my computer and decided to go watch it at Imax with the whole 3D thing. It looks good from what I saw so far.

I took in Avatar at Imax, that was a very good movie in my opinion. The story line reminded me of a certain country with their greed and how we really take our world for granted with all our pollution and destroying of our forest :'(.

Has anyone seen the new sherlock holmes movie? Saw it myself, while it was not bad it was not memorable. Found it slow at times and it lacked an ah ha moment. Also the acting tended to be over the top at times.

Went to see the 3pm IMAX or 3:30pm 3D Avatar showings and was informed that all the shows were sold out til 7pm. Decided to take in Sherlock Holmes instead. It's a Guy Ritchie movie so it was a little over the top, but entertaining and funny at times.

Went to see Avatar 3D last night. The ticket price rock me a little but wha-de-hell, ah went.
I enjoyed it. Since I had already seen the flat version, I was able to concentrate on the imagery and symbolism that I'd been hearing about.
The story reminded me of the Iraq war and we know one guy who is exactly like that colonel. The 3D effect was cool for the animals and the little floating tree-seeds but for the human(oids), not so much.

All in all, very entertaining in either film version. I give it a 7 out of ten.
__________

No desire to see Sherlock though. Holmes was originally written as a delicate almost effeminate character. Dapper, fashionably dressed, with a brilliant mind. This travesty of a new character is a little too much for me at the moment. I may rent it in a couple of years to waste time.  ;D

Looks interesting, I'll see if I can find it to watch. Taken is another human trafficking movie that was   good.

Ah took een Hangover over de weekend...nuff belly laughs. It up there with all de top kicks movies, but I eh rate it higher dan Old School though. Ah nearly dead laughing at most of de scenes in dat movie. And I eh know big Will Farrell fan, but he was at his finest in dat movie!

FYI, de same wedding singer from Old School was in Hangover. He was not as funny de second time around though.

Through a series of unfortunate events I ended up seeing this. Tragically boring to say the least. Its not even worth a DVD viewing IMHO. Notwithstanding its chickflickliness the first one was actually a decent movie. This was horrible.

I saw a pirated version of Avatar online and felt compelled by the story. The are some similarities to The Last Samurai but din teef from it. This is a brilliant film. Then I saw it at cinema. The visuals even on standard projection are outstanding. I felt that they didn't act as filler for a vacuous story but simply enhanced it. I'm going to see it in 3d next week. Zoe Saldana's performance as tribe princess was convincing.




From a technical standpoint the rendering of the textures on the 3d models, especially when conveying emotions is truly impressive.

Took een Avatar a couple days ago..

Not sure what you all talking bout extra for 3D, as I got een for $13 and it came with ah free popcorn. Absolutely one of the best movie for 2009.

Besides everything else people mentions about why they think the movie was outstanding, for me it was the story telling.. but not just that. The film started off with real people but as the plot grew and the animated characters morphed into the movie itself, it was hardly noticeable. Brilliant.

Funny enough I was speaking with a Brazilian chick the same night and she said the story reminded her about the amazon and the raping of the forest.

I've never been a fan of 3D, but this was impressive.


Cameron has given us so much to work with for a sequel... can't wait.

That is the major theme of the movie -the effect of man's unmitigated greed on the environment. I have to agree that it was one of my favourite movies of 2009. Some of the reviews not as positive but forget dem !

queen, ent holmes was a coke addict? i eh know about effeminate - he was quick to throw down with any body he catch. but de victorian social mores really come through in the acd stories - thing read like a police report. real dry, no "slackness".
